Mark has created an audiogeek’s paradise that simply has to be seen (and heard) to be believed.
When you arrive at Mark’s home in picturesque Malvern, nothing quite prepares you for what lies in wait. A friendly face beckons you along a corridor, and at the end of it is the room where it all happens. Mark’s studio is a celebration of his eccentricity, and genuine passion for unbeatable sound.
“you realise that you have never actually heard your favourite song before”
Sit in the hot seat, positioned intentionally in the middle of the room so you are totally surrounded by sound, and if you’ve got the time, he will gladly spend hours playing you all your favourite songs on his gorgeous valve-based sound systems. And it’s only then that you realise that you have never actually heard your favourite song before. Every hidden nuance is suddenly clear as day, every backing vocal, every secret guitar part that probably took a whole day to record. If you’re considering purchasing a serious bit of kit, you’d be hard-pressed to find a more enjoyable way to do it.
